Hospital gowns are short and skimpy but not intended to be the curtain for a peep show. The Herald Tribune reports on a hospital employee who needs a new career.
PORT CHARLOTTE — When William Deloge was lying in the emergency room with a tube in his throat, a man charged with his care made a crude game of his vulnerable state.
They strapped his arms down because he kept trying to pull out the ventilator tube, he added.
Deloge, who was on prescription medications such as Percocet and Oxycodone for various health problems, went in and out of consciousness during his ER stay, according to medical records ….
During the periods of consciousness, Deloge said he could not speak because of the tube in his throat.
“I heard this male voice going ‘Peek-a-boo, peek-a-boo, peek-a-boo,’ while my gown is going up and down,” he said.
